7 Computational couture
--> Document the concept, sketches, references also to artistic and scientific publications
--> Design a parametric model using Grasshopper3D and upload the rhino file + grasshopper files
--> Learn how to use 3D printing techniques to print the 3D model in/on the chosen materials
--> Document the workflow for exporting your file and preparing the machine and gcode to be 3D printed
--> Upload your stl file with pictures at: https://oscircularfashion.com
--> Submit some of your swatches to the analog material library of your lab (20cm *20cm aprox)
Lecture takeaways & inspo
--> Grasshopper is a graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools. Unlike RhinoScript, Grasshopper requires no knowledge of programming or scripting, but still allows designers to build form generators from the simple to the awe-inspiring. For designers who are exploring new shapes using generative algorithms.
//COMMANDS Hit space bar —> shows search bar and type the object you want to add Extrude -> set your design than extrude it to have a 3D render Bake -> once design is done bake it so it's displayed on Rhino Set object -> hhe small objects with icons you have to SET THEM so they are displayed in Grasshopper //TO INSTALL A PLUGIN File > special folders > USERS or if the plugin is green in LIBRARY (or component) //PLUGINS Bifocals —> shows full name of objects Remap+ -> a better version of the remap tool
Design 3D printed on fabric
--> I designed a parametric design on Grasshopper following the tutorials and with the help of my local instructor. You can download the rhino files here
--> Once the parametric design exported in .stl I learned to use Ultimate Cura, the 3D printing software to prepare and slice my file for the printer PRUSA.
